John Cena demanded a title match against CM Punk, then he insisted Zack Ryder get a chance to fight for the U.S. title and then finally he interfered in Ryder’s match to ensure he got his United States Championship match.
In fact, since John Cena enjoys making matches and determining their outcomes, I think he should not only be the GM but also the lead writer for the WWE Creative team.
Even when Cena is not in the WWE Championship picture, he finds a way to dominate screen time more than any superstar on the roster. I am fully aware that Cena does not book himself on Raw, but when he is involved in every other segment I begin to wonder.
Was it necessary for John Cena to beat Zack Ryder and then make the “ultimate sacrifice” by giving up his WWE title shot so Ryder could get another chance at the U.S. title?
Why does John Cena have to be the ultimate good guy when Ryder could have beat Cena and had a great TV moment? That was Cena’s chance to put over young talent and he failed.
Then when Ryder finally gets a chance to redeem himself, John Cena runs down and steals the spotlight by knocking out Mark Henry and throwing Zack Ryder on top for the win. I have written about it and will continue to do so: Cena is using Ryder’s popularity to stay relevant.
I will always give kudos to Randy Orton who continues to put over other wrestlers so they can also advance. I think it would have been really nice to see John Cena do the same for Zack Ryder tonight.
Instead of Ryder defeating a former WWE Champion, John Cena had to come down and defeat his opponent for him.
Do we just need a break from John Cena for a while? Is it time to let some of the other superstars grow without John Cena stealing the spotlight consistently?
